FORT, made up of Alberta Niemann (1982 in Bremen) and Jenny Kropp (1978 in Frankfurt am Main), create experiential spaces and spatial experiences through their sculptural installations and performances. They adapt and transfer everyday objects to the exhibition space which often have a subtly surreal character, evoking an eerie atmosphere. By appropriating the existing and adding their own elements, FORT’s works disturb the supposedly familiar with strange features, generating real and sensual references to our actual world, whilst also pointing to an imaginative elsewhere. Viewers become involuntary extras in a scene serving to make visible the mechanisms of consumer society and the art market, transforming the familiar into ambiguous, confusing, poetic, but also humorous and absurd settings.
